Spring Essentials You Need This Year


While I absolutely love sweater season, enough is enough and I am so ready for warmer temps. SO, now that we can leave the house without a jacket and pants, it’s time to bust out my favorite basics for spring!! I bought this black midi dress during the winter (for only $32!!!) and have been so excited to wear it this spring.  It’s a classic from ASOS, comfortable and the perfect midi length. I’ve worn it with everyone from sneakers to my favorite new kitten heels from Botkier! You guys know that I always go to ASOS for my affordable closet staples, but I’ve added a few from other retailers for you guys as well.

I am a newly converted lover of kitten heels. After years of watching Cath rocking them in various looks on The Crystal Press, I decided to try ’em out for myself. When Botkier reached out about a spring collaboration, I was delighted to see this pair in their current collection. I have been gravitating less and less towards wearing high heels lately, so these seemed like the perfect compromise! They still improve my posture, but they’re much more comfortable and practical, especially on a daily basis.

I met Sabra from Charbellem when I was helping my mom sell Turkish Towels at Collegiate last week and fell in love with her stuff! She has handmade leather goods from Aspen, Colorado (like the wrap bracelet you see here), a specially curated clothing selection & jewelry from Asha! Check out her instagram – you can buy via DM!


After completing an exciting project and having a little cash to spend, I decided that I wanted to add to my handbag collection! At first I was looking at new Gucci bags, Chloe and a few other “IT” bags costing around $1,000.  While I LOVE these bags and love when Cathclaire lets me take hers for a spin, I decided to go in a different direction and get a vintage Gucci Bag from TheRealReal for half the price! I am so so happy with my choice, and now have decided that collection vintage Gucci bags is gonna be my thing (purchased my first one back in 2017!)

    I love that dress, it looks like a perfect transitional piece, just that extra bit of coverage when you still need it. And your kitten heels could not be cuter!

    I have a handful of kitten heels on my wishlist for spring, and now you’ve just made me add some more hehe. Love that you’re not adhering to the typical “pastels and neutrals” but instead going for classic, black items for spring.
